Tips to Get Active

Adding physical activity to your day

Take a step in the right direction by adding physical activity to your daily lifestyle. Start by slowly increasing your physical activity to meet the new physical activity recommendations.

Physical activity doesn’t mean only sports – it can include everyday things like walking the dog, planting a garden, playing tag, building a snowman, tobogganing, and even household chores like raking the leaves, or sweeping the garage.
